Here is our Ancient History Cookbook. We used it in our home and in our world history homeschool co-op. Everyone loved it! We would take turns making lunch based on the time period we were studying. From Eve’s Apple & Walnut Salad in the Garden of Eden to Ancient Egypt’s Leek and Onion Soup, we cooked and baked our way through time.
If you want to teach history the fun way, include cooking and baking to explore the time period, geographical area, and people you are studying, Ancient History Cookbook will be a tool in your history teaching toolbox. Food is a great way to immerse ourselves in a time period we are studying. After all, history is not just a bunch of dates and information, history is about real people who are loved by the One who created each one. I want my kids to love history because it’s God Story. This is a great way to cultivate history enthusiasm!
